Here's what sets this list apart from others: I didn't just randomly choose kits I saw online for a roundup--these have all been thoroughly reviewed by me, so you know they're good! Check 'em out and let me know your faves:
Glitz & Glam kit for $45 that seriously has everything she needs for all of those holiday parties, especially New Years Eve. Bonus idea--If $45 is too pricey, try making your own DIY version using drugstore makeup!
Deck the Eyes kit in your purse or desk at work to transform day eyes to dramatic night eyes. This Pur Minerals kit includes a felt tip liner for that dramatic cat eye and a mascara that really defines the lashes. AND it's only $12. Get it at purminerals.com*
3 Little Wonders Kit are excellent products for her to treat her skin, like Truth Serum® Collagen Booster, Sheer Transformation® Brightening Moisturizer and Invigorating Night Gel™. This kit is $22.50 but there's a larger size for $70.
Inside the Pur Minerals Let it Glow kit has exactly what is needed to glow for the holidays. You'll find a creamy highlighter, blush, and bronzer. Use them all together or pick the ones that work for you. $24 at purminerals.com*
Kat Von D The Star Studded Look has everything needed for that special night out.
eter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Kit. For $20, you get 3 mini masks that are so, so good. There's a cucumber gel mask--great for puffy eyes (I keep it in the fridge), irritated skin, or right after a brow wax. There's a rose stem cell mask to repair and give youthful-looking skin. And there's a pumpkin enzyme mask that exfoliates. These are wonderful for travel, too! FYI--there's a $45 version too with bigger sizes.
From left to right: Decadent (dazzling red metallic flakes), Twilight Twinkles (brilliant flakes of gold), Sugar Sugar (candy cane, red-hot red), Galax-Sea (magical green flakes). Sugar Sugar is a gorgeous, slightly shimmery red, and the others make excellent top coats. The best part? These SinfulColors polishes are $1.99 each at Walgreens.*
